The Master of Technology Entrepreneurship is a selective programme with limited spots available. Up to 50 candidates will be admitted to the programme. In order to embrace and leverage different perspectives, the intake will be based on domain and background to ensure balance and diversity.

Although students may fulfil the basic requirements, this does not guarantee acceptance to the programme. The final admission decision is based on an overall evaluation, including relevant (entrepreneurial) experience and academic results.
